versions of this movie before, rove rened, that i wouldn't be too confident. >> there are those that don't you think the activists and the gras roots that want to see change has to keep this in front of the public? >> absolutely. we can't let this issue fall sigh lent. 32 of us are going to be murdered tomorrow if tomorrow is an average american day like every other day. we need to do something that all of us can get behind. things that all of us already support. most of us don't know that we don't have things like background checks on all gun sales. that we sell military weaponst to the general public. people are shocked when they realize that. when they do, things change. >> colin, i'm going to have to leave you there. colin and dana millbank, thanks for your time tonight. >> thanks, reverend. >> thanks. >> still ahead, mike huckabee's stunning comment after the sandy hook tragedy. why are so many conservatives refusing to admit that guns are the problem? we'll look at president obama's reaction to the tragedy as a leader and as a father. you're watching "politics nation" on msnbc.
